Phase conjugation via multiple gratings in photorefractive crystals. Academic Article uri icon


  • We consider phase conjugation via degenerate four-wave mixing in photorefractive crystals when more than one grating mechanism is operative. A method for exact solution of the steady-state wave equations which include pump depletion is presented. It is discovered that equal-strength multigrating operation does not allow signal amplification. 1988 The American Physical Society.
